3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy deep yellow with a big white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, wheat and citrus hops. Taste is a both a nice mixture of wheat, grass and hops, but it also seems to muddle together. Its also a bit thick on the mouthfeel, so a refreshing wit on a hot day is not this.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - Cloudy golden orange body with a 3 finger white head. Pretty good lacing left behind as well.
S - Clove and coriander, musty Belgian yeast, confectioner sugar, oranges, herbal hops.
T - Lemon and minty herbal hops followed by a creamy orange flavor. Clove, and coriander accent the chewy yeasty center. Sweet tropical fruit bleed through close to the peppery finish.
M - Soft and delicate at first then moves to a peppery finish. Full bodied.
Boulevard loves the citrus when it comes to this family of styles and it works well here. Solid amount of spice and plenty of herbal and tropical flavors running through the yeast and malt.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is my first trip into white IPA territory. The aroma was a mild mix of hoppy citrus and more distinct lemon character. I guess that is why it appears to be a mix of IPA and witbier. The color was a clear golden with a white fizzy head until the end. This leaned toward a wheaty IPA with some spice that reminded me of some rye IPA’s. This was also easy to drink. I need to revisit this style before making an opinion.

Bottle. Pours cloudy pale golden amber with a nice off white head. Aroma is dry hoppy piny fruity citric and malty. Flavor is much like the aromas, very nice bitter touch, spot on. Good dry hoppy finish.

Very hazy amber beer. Big white head. Light palate, starts fluffy but turns crisp and dry. Seltzer mineral backdrop, vaguely bretty. Vibrant sherbetty fruits - an equal balance of orange, lemon, grapefruit, mango and peach. Dry minerally finish with bitterness kicking in. Lovely!

Bottle shared Thorpe429. Thanks Mike!
The beer is hazy and yellow, with a finger of white head that leaves ample lacing. The aroma brings coriander, yeast, hops. The flavor is decent, offering more spices than hops. The feel is medium bodied, with a lingering spicy finish. I like the aroma a bit more than the taste. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 750ml caged and corked bottle into a pint glass. Batch: 2011-3
A: A slight hazy straw with some floating sediment. Nice 2 finger white head that is airy on the pour with nice retention. Sticky lace follows me down the glass.
S: The yeasty witbeir quality is shining through some nice peppery spices. Little bit of citrus hops at the backend.
T: Same as the nose, but it is lighter on the funky yeast and bigger on the hops. Has a mild bitter finish.
M: Crisp and clean with a light body. Nicely carbonated.
O: I enjoyed this version much more than the Deschutes version as I got more hops in this one and it drank closer to the style of "White IPA" IMO.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with a large creamy white head leaving good sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is yeast floral hops and orange peel. Thin mouthfeel with a strong lemongrass and light fruit with bitter finish. Hides alcohol well, a good IPA from Boulevard.

The Deschutes version may be a tad less aggressively spiced, but both share a complex assortment of flavors. Pepper, coriander, sage, orange and lemon, wheat, and grass. Very nice.
